Mad Catz has entered into an agreement with Microsoft Studios to produce Halo 4 video game headsets due later this year.
It’s the latest game licence acquired by Mad Catz, which has already produced official products for popular properties such as Ghost Recon, Gears of War and Street Fighter IV.
Mad Catz owns the Tritton brand of headsets which the Halo 4 products will be produced for.
“We are excited to add Halo 4 to our portfolio of world class video game licences,” said Mad Catz president and CEO Darren Richardson.
“Halo is one of the world’s most popular video games and these new Halo-branded headsets are sure to appeal to the passionate gamer who wants to maximise his or her Halo experience.”
Frank O’Connor, franchise development director at Halo 4 developer 343 Industries, added: “We’ve worked closely with Tritton engineers and industrial designers to ensure compelling and appropriate technological and aesthetic designs that map closely to Halo’s epic sci-fi universe.”
Halo 4 arrives on Xbox 360 on November 6th. The headsets will hit shelves in time for Christmas.
